This bug was fixed in the package software-properties - 0.87

software-properties (0.87) quantal; urgency=low

  * Restore apt-add-repository symlink.
  * Handle removal of cmp builtin from Python 3 (LP: #1022665).
  * Open NamedTemporaryFile in text mode when writing text to it
    (LP: #1021639).
  * Fix display glitch in add-apt-repository that caused "None" to be
    printed for any PPA without a description.
